Join Us for the All Atheist Weekend in San Francisco!
Ellen Johnson, President of American Atheists, will be speaking at 595 Market Street, home of the Commonwealth
Club, on Friday May 20 at 7:00 p.m. There will be no fee for attendance. She will speak on "Madalyn O'Hair:
What She stood For and Why Her Ideas Matter Today." This presentation uses rare, archival footage which includes
interviews, commentary and more. Johnson also discusses some of the key legal cases Ms. O'Hair initiated, and talks
about how her ideas are especially relevant today pertaining to issues like display of religious icons on public
property, the faith-based initiative, and much more.
Afterwards we are planning a dinner with Ellen. The producers of the movie, The God Who Wasn't There, will make
a presentation at the dinner. We will attempt to raise some money with this dinner to partially offset
the large fee we must pay to rent the Commonwealth Club.
